Tools used in plastic injection molding are subject to abrasion from glass filled polymers or other composite materials, sliding friction during processing or ejection, corrosion from resins or physical damage from routine handling. Ionbond™ PVD and PACVD coatings improve the productivity of these tools.

Plastics film extrusion
Film extrusion of plastics like PVC pose unique challenges to tools. The corrosive outgassing of the resin attacks the traditionally chrome plated tools, causing production stoppages. Ionbond™ PVD coatings offer protection from corrosive attack.
